FACT: Companies operating non-DOT regulated vehicles are exposed to liability. An employer can be held liable for the wrongful acts of an employee who is acting on behalf of the employer. Penalties for failing to properly control the exposure to your owned, non-owned, and hired auto exosure can lead to not only compensatory damages but also punitive damages. Since punitive damages generally are not covered by insurance carriers, the cost can hit employers full force.
FACT: DOT non-compliance penalties and Out of Service orders can have a tremendous adverse impact on your ability to conduct business. Fines can soar into the tens of thousands of dollars and Out of Service Orders can cost you time, money, reputation, and customers.
